At C.E.L. & Associates, Inc., we are dedicated to peaceful, cost-effective agreements that make sense and are good for everyone involved, especially our clients’ children. We have 8 offices throughout Chicagoland and Southeast Wisconsin. And now with Zoom capability, we are able to be even more flexible scheduling meetings and have found benefits in meeting via Zoom that we never imagined possible: lower cost, less stress, more time efficient, expedited from start to finish and better overall satisfaction with the process.
We help resolve conflicts, period. We work with those going through a divorce, those never married with children, people who are divorced, have a parenting agreement and need help restructuring it and LGBTQ clients. We believe in resolving conflicts privately, cost-effectively and outside of the courtroom. No dispute that goes to court ends on a positive note. Though there is a winner and a loser when people go to court, overall, everyone loses from a court battle. With mediation, all parties win. If you do not win on one issue, you may win on another, so everyone feels good about the outcome.
Our commitment to mediation allows us to make a difference in people’s lives while they are embroiled in one of the most stressful and scary times in their lives. We help our clients work through their issues by using a process that helps them develop skills they can use for years to come. Through mediation, we help people resolve their conflicts and teach them problem-solving skills, empathy and self-determination. Mediation gives our clients the ability to make informed decisions for themselves. We have achieved a major objective if, when confronted with a conflict, our clients refer back to what they learned in mediation
